This hotel has a lovely waterside location by the bridge which also means you hear the train going across quite often. You get used to it. The rooms are lovely but lack any shelves or drawers and the closets had few hangers so we were living out of suitcases which is ok for shorter stays but hard for a week.... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Bowsprit, Don is a wondeful host. I wish the kitchen had been a tad bit bigger, but I'm being picky. It was clean, smelled great, and very cute. Plenty of hot water, nice soft towels, and extra comfrter & pillows if needed. We loved staying right on th water, and watcing the harbour activities.

First of all Pier One Vacation Rentals has various appartments / condos hence one has to read reviews carfully to understand what people are rating. We initially booked the Fok Sul condo but as the heating system didn't work we were offered an alternative, the PILOT appartment for approximately $270 per night (no breakfast). Verdict: we would probably not recommend... More

Pier One has once again proved to be the perfect summer retreat for us. Waking to the sounds of gulls and the earliest lobster boats heading out to sea is what we dream about while anticipating another wonderful Maine vacation. The Bowsprit has become our favorite "just us" unit, as the space is right for two, and the private deck... More

Awesome week in MDI made even better by staying in Fok Sul at Pier One. Everything we needed and more. Cute, cute, cute and charming. Gave us a very Maine cottage feel. Location excellent. Walked to town many times for coffee, ice cream, blueberry pie, dinner. All in that order😃. A special place to stay while visiting Acadia! Highly recommend.

Just returned home from a wonderful week at Pier One Vacation Rentals in South West Harbour. It was everything we hoped it would be. Our unit was so cute, comfortable and quaint.

The apartment was perfect for our family. It was clean and well equipped. We enjoyed our stay tremendously. It was ideally situated close to the stores in Southwest Harbor and was a short drive away from Acadia National Park.

My fiancee´ and I have not even arrived yet, but we are already very excited to get there. I called Don this week to ask about availability and he was wonderful.

In early September we spent a week in Maine and stayed at pier1 waterfront in southwest harbor. Pier1 is a lovely place, very clean, with nice views of the harbor, close to many points of interest in Acadia national park and within walking distance to the restaurants in the village of SWH.

This is a small complex of stylish studio apartments right by the water and within 15 mins walk from the centre of Southwest harbour village. We stayed in Fok-Sul which was on the lower level with a lovely deck which was literally less than a stone's throw from the water. The kitchen is fully equipped and all very comfortable in... More

“Its a bit cozy. If you like to sprawl out, then pack lightly as the square footage is tight.”
